Welcome! i used to have a ratty named Lucy, i had her with her sister Isabelle.... i thought the names were cute together! Oreo is an adorabe name too! What do your ratties look like?! Pictures!
how long has she been alone though? think about getting her a Little babe! or you can go all out and get 2 little ones! they have a tendency of being introduced more smoothly. They love playing together!

give your lone ratties lots of attention, sometimes being alone makes them more timid/skittish.

well... my rat lucy did live with a little baby rat for awile...
see my dad has a snake and he goes to the store to buy feeder rats for it and one day he got this little baby and when he put her in the tank the little rat was so smart she got away from my snake every time he tried to get her. she had all these little tactics to get away from him. So eventualy I convinced my dad to get the poor thing out of the cage so I could keep her. (I cant stand watching those poor things being eaten ><) So I kept her in the cage with lucy and they seemed to get along exept lucy was pretty mean to the little one every time she tried to eat, so I started feeding them seperatly. They became pretty good friends and it was so cute to see them sleep together...but I woke up one morning (about a month after the incident) and I found the little one dead :( I don't know why she died..it confused me and I hoped that lucy wouldn't become depressed but she seems fine. im thinking she might get a little lonely so i'm trying to get a new pal for her. anyways heres a picture of lucy and oreo:
